Week 14 Prompts are: Fedora \ whip \ satchel \ leather \ tweed ~~ Pie with a whip topping was a rare treat but one Jim carried over to his adulthood and he always made sure to have a special dessert included even on dates. Audrey's favorite turned out to be strawberry shortcake with extra whipped topping or turtle fudge with whipped cream. "Don't expect me to make meringue," she said. "Every time I try, it weeps." --- The satchels were filled with books for the book club meeting. Nyota's held biographies of musicians while Sherralyn's contained novels that were biographic fiction. Miranda's offering included a selection of classic poetry and feel-good nostalgic novels. "Things you read or had read to you as a kid" was how she explained them. "Lovely," Nyota said. "Those are the books that turn out to be timeless in their appeal." --- "That leather is fake, you can tell." Christine said to Janice during a shore leave in a shoes boutique. "How can you tell?" "It'll flake off and peel as soon as it's exposed to damp weather, rain or snow. Then you won't be able to wear them." Janice scowled. "I love the height of the heel and the color, such a nice shade of blue." "Ah! These are the real deal and are the same color." "Thanks!" --- Fedora and tweed … how retro! But masquerades were all about that. McCoy and Jim decided to come as Watson and Holmes. Audrey laughed when she saw them and Nyota teased them about sleuthing. Nyota was exotic in a regal outfit of scarf-like material which floated about her in rippling multi-colored hues and was accented with gemstones of amethyst and sapphire. "That is stunning," Audrey said sincerely. She herself was in a lovely Oriental kimono with leaping dolphins as a pattern. "Thank you. This was a truly wonderful idea for a mid-tour celebration," Nyota remarked.
